With all of my Twittering and Tweeting, Do I Really Need Twirl??

Do I need Twirl?  Is it going to make my life any easier?  

debs Twitter

This keeping up with all of the social networking is killing me.  I think I need to hire an Internet social secretary just to keep up with my Twitters, Tweets, and Utterz.  

Now I have done the unthought of and joined facebook (Deborah Fisher.Fisher & Company) so I will need to set that up as well.

Good Lord, how am I ever going to keep it all up?? How do y'all do it? Is anyone getting any work done?

To add to my busy Internet social life, I am going to be doing a mobile web in the next few days.  That's probably going to eat up some of my time. 

Please help me decide if I need Twirl.  Here's what I am using at the moment:  I use a Macbook Pro and a Vista OS LTPC, so I can sit here, work on one and keep several windows open at once and see what is going on.  Plus I have the Blackberry Curve which does a great job for me. (Want an iPhone, don't want the provider.)  

Oh, yeah . .  I also have a FLIP that I just bought.  I need to factor that into the mix. I am lovin' that thing. 

Do I need Twirl? Someone please let me know.

You can Twiiter me @deborahfisher 

Thanks.

Yes you do need Twirl. The great thing about Twirl is that it auto-updates so you don't have to refresh your web page. On top of that, it allows you to shorten any link you may add to your "mini-post". I use it, it runs in the background and notifies me when someone I follow has updated. Makes life a lil bit easier.

Okay, but I have a widget on my blog that already auto updates, and I get messages to my blackberry when people tweet. 

The one advantage or differnce I see is being able to twirl links to people, correct?

Deborah- I've been totally resisting all these social networking options.  It's just toooooo time consuming.  How much is too much???  I also have this little nag thing going on about being out there thatmuch.  I know they all claim "no spam" but somehow it all finds it way to my inbox, or used to find it's way.  I started using a program called MailWasher (see my blog if your interested) which has been an enormous help.  Anyway, I guess I'm just slow to jump in and have adopted a wait and see attitude.  My guess is you're the jumping in kind ;-) so go for it and let us know if you find it worthwhile.

Gail, thanks for the post.  I don't think that when I started this social networking project as a test marketing case that I would get this sucked in.  It is really time consuming . . . just blogging takes time. Plus I like to read other blogs and post comments there.  I am a fast reader, but . . .

I am just now completing FACEBOOK for our company.  I can't believe how easy it is, but I can see that this will be something else to suck me in and take up my time.  I think updates will be very improtant as keeping the content fresh is critical.  I am looking at it as just another website.  Conetent needs to be changed frequently to keep people coming back.

Gail, I will add you as an associate and let you know what happens here.

Happy marketing! Stay social!

Thanks Deborah - I do keep an open mind to the social process, it just the time required is hard to find sometimes.  I really enjoy A|R and probably spend more time than I should.  Like you I enjoy reading other posts and always aim at reciprocating back.  I added you as an associate as well and sent you an email regarding what category to put you in.  How about Social Anomaly ;-)

You are too funny!  I love it.  Honestly, we really have to have a sense of humor to keep us creative and help us laugh not only at others but at ourselves.  I am glad that you don't take yourself too serious! 

I look forward to settling down and reading some of your posts later tonight.

Deb,  If you are feeling in to much a twirl with your other sites, leave twirl out for now.  When feeling more relaxed, then maybe give twirl a whirl.  Mike
